A new survey by Coinbase has shown that the majority of US students want to take up courses on cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
According to the recent survey that counted 675 students and was conducted by the digital currency exchange Coinbase along with Qriously, 18% of the students said that they own crypto assets – and a quarter of them said that they would definitely take a course in the field cryptocurrency or blockchain.
The finance department chair at the New York University Stern School of Business, David Yermack, also said that courses like these will “greatly benefit” students. He claimed that he has seen almost a six times increase in the number of enrolled students in his course on blockchain over the past four years.
As he stated, the reason for such an increase is clear:
“A process is well underway that will lead to the migration of most financial data to blockchain-based organizations. Students will benefit greatly by studying this area.”
One review also found that cryptocurrency and blockchain courses are slowly finding a place among the top 50 universities in the world. Among all of them, even 42% offer at least one course on blockchain and crypto-related studies – while 22% of them provide more than one class.
The survey also found that 47% of social science major students said that they were interested in learning about crypto – just like 34% of the students attending computer science and engineering as their majors.
